Refinishing Your Piece - Paint, Stain & Topcoats
Experience vs. Experimentation
The tools you use, products you choose, and your technique can help you create that unique piece you have envisioned. Get to know your tools and experiment with different brands of paint and stain. As you progress, you will discover and develop your own unique style.
Experience is great and will save you time and money...and grief. But don't forget to experiment to learn new techniques and different ways to achieve the look you want.
There is a reason I call myself the "Accidental Artist". Some of my best work has been an "accident" and I've liked the outcome better than the look I was trying to achieve.
Enjoy your art.
